Beach toys come and beach toys go, but the humble beach ball continues to endure. And why not? There are few simpler pleasures than tossing around one of these large plastic spheres with your mates.

And it is large with its whopping 24 inch diameter. It might prove overwhelming for small children, but it does allow adults to join in the fun. I think that makes it a better family proposition than the smaller beach balls we see.

This Intex ball plays on our nostalgia, with its six brightly colored panels. It looks just like the kind of ball we might have played with as children, which makes getting it for our own children that much more tempting.

Also tempting is the price, a real bargain at $5.48. But remember the old adage that you get what you pay for. It seems that Intex knows its ball won't last long, because it sells it packaged with repair tape. That should suffice if your puncture is in the middle of a panel, but you'll struggle to mend the hole if your ball comes apart at the seams. And if the ball's getting regular use, that's a distinct possibility.

Still, perhaps we can't get too upset when such a cheap ball gives up the ghost. After all, it won't cost too much to replace it.
